Cozy townhouse on the Swedish West Coast

A cozy townhouse with modern interior and 7 (!) different floor levels. The house is located within walking/biking distance from Halmstad City Center and the West Beach.

Halmstad is Sweden's no.1 summer town with several sandy beaches nearby, the most famous being Tylösand beach resort. The free public pool "Brottet" is 5 minutes down the road from the house.

Halmstad is also a perfect starting point if you want to explore the Swedish West Coast: 1,5 hours from Gothenburg and 1,5 hours from Malmö/Copenhagen. Also, drive 10 minutes inland and you are in the woods of "Sweden's first wilderness."

About Our Family

We're a typical Swedish family of four. Thomas is a copywriter for an international technology company in Halmstad, plays the bass and is addicted to running. Maria is a consultant within urban planning, does yoga and loves gardening. Rebecka loves horses, dancing and badminton. Elias is a happy little guy who loves his videogames.

Lifestyle

With kids aged 10 and 13 we're trying to solve the life-puzzle of school, work, activities, sports, and finding the time to breathe every once in a while. We enjoy travelling and meeting new people and we're really like the concept of exchanging houses.
